Welcome to Year 5
We wish your children every success in the year ahead. Please feel free to come and see us with any concerns that you may have.
The expectation is that each week, children will complete tasks related to spellings, times tables and reading. There will also be either a grammar or maths task to be completed.
Please ensure all your child’s clothes and belongings are clearly labelled.
Please include water bottles, PE kit and lunch boxes.
PE kit should be in school every day.

Year 5 residential: Bowles 2019
This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to experience a range of outward bound activities which are delivered between 18-20th November 2019 for the whole year group. Attached below is the presentation shown at the Parent Meeting on 9th October 2019.
Health and hygiene
In the summer term we deliver the Health and Hygiene aspects of our Sex Education Policy which complements our science work on life cycles of animals, plants and humans. The children have the opportunity to handle hygiene products such as flannels, soap and deodorant.
Who are our Year 5 teachers?
Year Group Teaching Assistants
Mrs Rolph, Mrs Clare, Miss Billson and Mrs Anderson
Planning, preparation and assessment time
The weekly planning preparation and assessment time will occur on Thursday afternoons when the children will be taught by Ms Billson, Ms Holmes and Mrs Anderson.
How can I support my child?
Regular reading and discussion with your child about their chosen reading book is still very valuable. Encourage them to explain why they chose the book, what do they think will happen next? Can they recall what has happened so far or make predictions? Supporting your child with the learning of their weekly spelling and mastery of the multiplication tables is also a valuable skill.
